live for us in washington. what's the latest? >> hi, jamie, hi, kelly. president obama is trying to turn up the heat on republicans, saying all it would take is a quote, little compromise to avoid those 85 billion dollars in spending cuts. the president wants more tax hikes included in any kind of compromise, and posed these questions to republicans who only want spending cuts. >> are republicans in congress willing to let these fall on our kids' schools and mental health care just to prevent tax loopholes. are they willing to slash, because they refuse tax cuts for big oil companies, seriously prepared to put more pain on the middle class because they refuse to put more on those at the top. and they say that americans have been hit with tax increases the beginning of this year when the g.o.p. agreed to go along with the president and allow certain bush era tax cuts to expire. and now republicans say they're ready to compromise on where and how the federal spending is cut, but they don't want more tax hikes and they're challenging the president to explain why he isn't reaching ou
was going to lead the administration that he was going back to the state of washington. he was someone i follow closely. he was nominated to be the cia director in 1991, and as an obama supporter, i was shocked to find out that he was going to be kept on as the secretary of defense. what he told people, i found, and it was a major reasoning for why i wanted to write this book, what he said is that we are moving towards a smaller military. one that will do fewer things than be able to go fewer places, which he thought was a terrible thing and he added that he didn't want to be a part of that kind of a system that is going to retrench. my feeling has always been that we need a smaller military that will do fewer things and go to fewer places. so that is the kind of book that i wanted to write. i thought that i should do it even though others have mined a lot of this. i'm sure a lot of you are familiar with the works who wrote things like the american empire and 10 years before that, john neuhaus, one of my favorite new york writers, wrote imperial america. other books have dealt with this.

everything that you hear out of washington. today again president obama rang the alarm bells on the four spending cuts that are set to take effect seven days from now. >> i've been very clear that these kinds of arbitrary automatic cuts would have an adverse impact on families, on teachers, on parents who are reliant on head start programs, on our military readiness, on mental health services on medical search. >> you heard a bit of it there, especially from democrats you're hearing we'll have trouble fighting wildfires, airplanes, security lines will be long, all sorts of things. how much of that is true? how much of it is politics? how do we react to that? "outfront," daniel altman, economics professor at nyu, it political columnist for "newsweek" and "the daily beast." you listened to all this talk about all these dire implications, is it real or is it scare tactics? >> some of it is definitely real. if you look at the figures we're looking at maybe 70,000 kids getting kicked out of head start programs. we're looking at a $1.6 billion cut in funding for the national institutes of heal
again. >> president obama used his bully pulpit this week to call on congress to avoid, get this, sequestration. that's washington nomenclature for automatic spending cuts due to go into effect on march 1, next friday. on that date, both military and domestic programs will feel the impact of the monumental $85 billion cuts slated for this year, 2013, alone. not only does the president condemn the cuts, but his administration is also sounding the alarm. first, the secretary of state. >> but in these days of the looming budget sequester that everyone actually wants to avoid, or most, we can't be strong in the world unless we are strong at home. my credibility as a diplomat, working to help other countries create order is strongest when america at least puts its own fiscal house in order, and that has to be now. >> next, the secretary of defense. >> members of congress need to understand that they were elected to protect the public, not to hurt the public. and i hope they will remember that as they hopefully work towards a resolution of this issue. >> the president and his cabinet a

here. >> when you pick up the phone and want to get a message to president obama, who you talk to in the white house? >> i talked to washington through two or three agencies. i probably talk to arnie duncan once a month. right now, hhs is a big issue. i would talk to the secretary while we are up here. i have not had to duck to the president. -- talk to the president. he called to ask your food be part of an education event -- if we would be part of an education event. vice president biden always offers a cell phone if we needed. >> he was the sheriff of the stimulus if i recall. did you have some encounters with him? >> we were seeing the last of that. >> time for one last question. the clock is ticking down. a point of personal privilege, speaking of joe biden, and hardball for you. where is the best barbecue for tennessee? >> that is the hardest question you have asked me. if i answer, i am toast. memphis is the barbecue center of the south. i will go with memphis. >> a place? >> i can go there. - can't go there. >> is the university of tennessee going to be confounded of --
: and there is still finger-pointing over whose idea this was in the first place. in a "washington post" op-ed, bob woodward claims it came directly from the white house, writing, "obama personally approved the plan." white house offials have argued that the majority of house republicans voted to approve the sequester. as for furloughs, government officials say the majority of them won't take effect for about a month. >> for more on how all this is playing out we're joined by cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood. if we get to friday, they don't make a deal, do is they cuts all play out at once or does it transpire over a series of weeks or months? >> they'll play out for a while, maybe not for a long while. even though body parties seem willing to let the sequester go into effect there's a lot not to like for both sides. if we see the effects like longer air travel delays you're going to see increasing pressure from their constituents to negotiate some sort of alternative. >> for the last couple of years we've heard about the so-called grand bargain. is that just a dream or is it some
of these possible cuts. lisa rein is following this for the "washington post" and she joins me now. lisa, in recent days senior members of the obama administration have laid out an exacting detail all the terrible consequences that the sequester goes through while republicans, in many cases, have said it might not be that bad. from your reporting, can you tell who's working closer to the truth? >> well, it is hard to tell you about this is really in part a political game because it really does look like these 85 billion dollars in spending cuts will begin to take effect next fridayment it does not look as if congress, either side in congress has a real interest in resolving this issue. and the obama administration has over the past, i'm going to say, about two weeks has stepped up the pressure on republicans to say to the public, okay, dire consequences will result if these cuts take effect. that's in part because the agencies have to make the cuts across-the-board and they can't really make them without furloughs. now air traffic is just one area of the government that would-- that the white house
reform is a hot button issue in washington. senators are working on a bill and an unfinished proposal by the obama administration suggests a path that would take 13 years. in san francisco, elissa harrington, kpix 5. >> thank you. >>> one of the high-speed rail's biggest enemies could become an ally. kpix 5's don knapp says that's only if neighbors on the peninsula get their way. don. >> reporter: liz, it's not that folks here in the peninsula are opposed to the concept of high- speed rail. what they are opposed to is a prospect of having streets and neighborhoods torn up for years while they expand the right of way. now there's legislation that could resolve that. a caltrain rolls into palo alto on a side of right of way. now after a century of development communities have moved up to the edge of the tracks. here at alma and churchill palo alto high's athletic fields and stadium border one side of the tracks. the busy road and compact neighborhoods border the other. expanding the right of way would take them out. that's what california's high- sp
and ron brownstein, executive director at the "national journal" magazine in washington. good to see you. ron, republicans could push president obama to push further spending cuts by threatening to shut down the government in the run-up to upcoming deadlines. we've heard one leading republican senator, john sni isaacson, say it's a bad idea, but could we be headed down the road to a shutdown? >> i think we are probably not. there are certainly republicans who have talked about that, but the consensus of sentiment seems to be moving on a different path now. i think what republicans are looking at more now is taking the sequester cuts and then codifying them in, as you know, a continuing resolution to extend the government funding through the rest of the year, and in fact daring the democrats to shut down the government by refusing to accept those large cuts in both discretionary and defense spending. >> david, you have served four u.s. presidents, including three republicans -- nixon, ford, and ronald reagan -- as well as an 18-month stint as counselor to democratic president bill clinton
and their take to president's role. >> these cuts in washington now as sequestration, are you willing to see first responders lose their job and teachers laid off? >> they were president obama's idea. >> the so-called "sequester" was obama's idea in the first place. he signed it law. >> white house recommended this. in august 2011. >> bob: to sell people this is obama's idea, it was his idea. but that is not what the public believes. the public believes -- >> andrea: do you hear yourself? >> bob: i am talking as a politician. is up why obama is doing what he is doing and sequestration being obama's idea. it doesn't matter. it does not matter. republicans are taking the fall. >> eric: i don't agree with you on that. >> andrea: the ad is bel beltway. you can go back and forth and play the blame game. okay. it's obama's fault. we know that. jay carney admitted it. what are you going to do about it? republicans would be better sevened cutting a deal on entitlements. they have the capital and they should do it. they are not pushing hard enough. your fault, your fault. who cares. it's not moving a
